    Nope, thought that one was too much based on area to even bother applying! Good luck if you did
    Probably won't get in but it's worth the try I'm guessing you're also doing Maths/F Maths A levels, do you do Chem and physics as well?

    Jesus I can't imagine doing 5 although I do absolutely nothing in my frees but talk to people anyway but yeah I do those 4 as well. On Edexcel for maths which is a godsend and OCR A for chemistry but on dreaded OCR B for physics which is an absolute trudge in itself. You know you're on a horrible exam board when the A grade is 55% lmao.

    Wbu, what exam boards are you on?

    I hope so. They said they'll tell everyone soon. They've given priority to those who live furthest away and I'm pretty sure I qualify for that.
    I found out about my travel reinbursement today, I was offered £20 which just covers the cost of my train fare. Has anyone found out about accommodation yet?

    Found out about accommodation. I've got overnight accommodation in Mansfield college. Not heard anything about travel reimbursement though.

    I got into PPE on the thursday and I've been offered £40 for the reimbursement and Brasenose College for the accommodation but didn't a student pass away there a couple of years back? I'm just a bit superstitious that's all :/

    Rumour has it that several people who once lived in Oxford have died. I'd ignore it #fakenews

    OCR MEI for both maths, OCR A for chemistry, AQA for physics.

    Hi, I only live an hour away by train so I didn't apply for accommodation - I will be going up on the morning of my taster day. Which taster day are you doing?

    Sorry - I am teasing. It would be a bit daft to make our life choices based on a fear of ghosts, don't you think?

    It's alright 😂 that's true I was just wondering whether I should take the accommodation but I've spoken to people and I know I'm being ridiculous 😅 it'll be fine
